Purple Public - The Political Voice For Moderate Americans

News Media and Politics

I will be the first to admit that I enjoy watching and listening to a wide variety of political TV and radio talk shows. However, I also know that they are not always the most unbiased sources of information around.


* Leans left during prime time viewing hours.

* Tends to be the most moderate cable news source.

* Extremely far right 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

The main thing to remember about most political talk shows is that they are almost always run and supported by large corporations.

It should also be noted that television and radio stations have a vested interest in keeping elections close in order to increase their advertising revenues.

This is especially true now since the Citizens United case ruling that allows corporations to spend unlimited amounts of money on political advertising.

Solution: Verify the accuracy and background of any political talk show host, because you may be suprised about what you find.
